A change in perspective

On Friday 16th August, many members of the Halifax Art Society met again  at ‘All Saints Hall’ on Skircoat Green and learned a lot in a ‘Perspective Workshop’ with Philip Hickin.

We were puzzled seeing an engraving by William Hogarth titled ‘Satire on False Perspective’ containing 22 errors but were told that it was deliberately produced that way in the 18th century.

In the second half of the morning we used our rulers and pencils following Philip’s instructions to create a road with lots of street lights all in perspective.
